Trump steps up attack on 'out-of-control' Muslim politician Ilhan Omar

16 April 2019

If Omar hadn't been so willing to share her thought-farts about Israel that Democrat would have been Ocasio-Cortez. 'President Trump must take down his disrespectful and unsafe video'. But Ilhan Omar meets all of those same criteria and is a devout Muslim prone to saying crankish things about Israel, "the Benjamins", and the supposedly suspect loyalties of supporters of the Jewish state. I'll put a bullet in her (expletive) skull'. "We can no longer ignore that they are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land".

These are her words in context: "Here's the truth".

Trump's Friday tweet included Omar's brief line "somebody did something" followed by more than 40 seconds of September 11 terrorist attack news footage and a large graphic repeating the words "somebody did something".

Some Democrats accuse Trump of stirring up the same kind of Islamophobia that Omar was decrying.

But liberals seethed that Pelosi (Calif.) and Democratic leaders did too little, too late.

"For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it", she said.

Using Pelosi's oft-repeated phrase - "Diversity is our strength and unity is our power" - Chamberlain said that when the speaker "tries to marginalize some of the newest leaders who are fighting hard.it's not a good look and it's not a smart strategy". But by not putting themselves on record about Omar when they could, Democrats now find themselves bound to her for the duration.

Trump posted the video after Omar described the 9/11 terrorist attacks by radical Islamists as "some people who did something". - Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women in the US Congress, drew stern rebukes from Republicans and fellow Democrats on February 11, 2019 after suggesting US support for Israel is fueled by money from the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC. Because on 12 April, he pinned a vile video-led tweet of progressive congresswoman Ilhan Omar. She said she has spoken to the sergeant-at-arms "to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff" and that they would "continue to monitor and address the threats she faces". She later sought to defend herself by tweeting a quote from former U.S. President George W. Bush.

Some considered the "some people did something" comment to be disrespectful or flippant language to describe the terrorist attacks.

In the latest incident, Trump posted a video to his 60 million Twitter followers that used a short snippet of an Omar speech followed by images of the burning Twin Towers in NY in 2001.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back against claims that the president is inciting violence. They want her gone because she upsets a cabal that is still essentially upper class, white, Christian, instrumentally liberal but ultimately conservative and war-mongering. "It has to stop", she said.

Sanders commented on "Fox News Sunday" and ABC's 'This Week.' Nadler appeared on CNN's 'State of the Union.

She's accused Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism and urged him to stop.
